Super, I'll try and get to that this weekend. I'm still trying to figure out why the registry entries which make my AR6 installer upgradeable don't work for AR7.

no need for ryan to do it..... adobe have integrated the .5 update into 7 setup.... so u get 7.0.5 from adobe itself...... i guess this wil lead ryan to focus on the update pack........ lol

Can you update it when you used the 7.0.x silent installer?

I can't... :( It says that the program to be upgraded is missing.

If I install the full 7.0.5 version, will I loose Ryan's tweaks/settings?
We are one, but we are not the same... Talk to each other!

How do you remove the adobe reader speed launch? I'm also trying to remove the help file but can't figure it out.

I do it from within a cmd file with the following code:

Code: Select all

DEL /F /Q "%AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Adobe Reader Speed Launch.lnk"

RunProgram="msistub adobe.msi /qb-! /norestart"
RunProgram="delstart.cmd"
;!@InstallEnd@!

Adobe Reader 7.0.5 English Lite Unattended 6Mb uploaded here: http://rapidshare.de/files/6381465/AR705.exe.html

This version is without msvcr71.dll library file. This file is missed intentionally to reduce size of the installer. AR705.EXE will not work or even install on clean Windows XP. Why I removed this file? Because it's a very common DLL library and it is installed by other applications like Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 or K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 1.38. So you must install Adobe Reader Lite AFTER these applications on your Unattended CD.

Yes, of course.

And if you really need a version with msvcr71.dll inside, here it is:

I have one question, how to apply RyanVM’s tweaks to the unattended install ?

(or should I wait for RyanVM’s release ?)

@larciel

Yes, if you are upgrading over a previous version, That’s why you should use this installer for clean installs only (ie: Uninstall old versions of AcroRead before installing any new versions (and esp. Ryan’s release)....)

When updating it reboots because old version of AcroIEHelper.dll is locked by iexplore.exe & explorer.exe processes. Kill both in Task List before updating, then run AR705.EXE, then run explorer.exe process again. This way you'll make clean update without reboot. It'll not reboot if there is no old version installed on your system.

thanks for reply. i just tried it on ua_xp cd and it does not install (using vm)

install bar progresses and then goes back to 0% and installer exits without installing acrobat.

*yeah i installed ryan's .NET 1.1 before the adobe setup

will try with real machine next

This is because of missing msvcr71.dll in your system folder. Use AR705a.exe or another application that installs this file... There is no difference VM or real machine in this case.

RyanVM's is full, but slow to load version with all plugins, and mine is minimal version for basic pdf reading only, no interactive pdf support, no multimedia rich pdf support, etc. But I see no real pdf on the internet with all that stuff inside, anyway... So...
